Today's QotD took a turn for the serious: Think about a time when you told a lie - how did you feel? How did the person you lied to feel? (the rest of the questions are all fun and innocent. what's up with this one?) I'm too old to try and remember a specific lie and the motivations behind it.

Yesterday's question was Happy First Day of Fall! What's your favorite thing about this season? Hoodies. Bonfires, leaves crunching under my feet when I take walks, hot apple cider. The lessening of humidity and death to all the mosquitoes.

This week's [livejournal.com profile] thefridayfive:

The name of...
1. Your favorite book?
Um. For a long time, I would say it was Survivor by Tabitha King, because something about it really resonated with me and the place I was at in my life when I read it. But I have a fondness for The Hobbit and have worn out multiple copies over the years. I remember our third grade teacher reading it to us - every day after lunch we'd get to sit quietly and hear part of the adventure - and it's always been a story and a world close to my heart, so I'm going to go with that.
2. Your favorite movie? Stand By Me - been my favorite since I was a teenager and my best friend and I could recite every single line. Other favorites, as in I have to watch them every time they're on - Twister, Jurassic Park, Independence Day, the original Willy Wonka movie.
3. Your least favorite adaptation of a book to a movie? For the most part, I try to judge books and movies separately? Even if the movie is based on a book, it's not going to be the same story or experience or whatever. I can think of a lot of cases where I prefer the book to the movie adaptation, but I can't name a least favorite. I can name a least favorite adaptation of a book to a television series, though, because The Dresden Files series that SyFy tried to do definitely did not live up to the world created in the books, although I did like their Bob.
4. Your least favorite adaptation ever of anything to a movie? I'm assuming this means like movies that were based on comic books and/or video games or something? Because I would have no idea. Maybe the Super Mario Brothers movie from the early 90s?
5. Your first ever novel/comic book/movie character crush? Um. Do you know how old I am? Because this question is asking me to think way too far back. Lol.
